This unique project is funded under the ENTRUST Landfill Tax Credit Scheme with a £400,000 grant from the RMC Environment Fund. It provides a national facility available to all those intending to manufacture aggregates. The project is managed by Nustone Limited, an Environmental Body. The Pilot Plant is situated at the Manufactured Aggregate Research Centre (MARC), University of East London (managed by Darryl Newport). The pilot plant is an upgrade of an installation previously operated at Tilbury by RTAL Limited and has been designed using state-of-the-art technology.
